Mary J Blige was also there having a grand ole time
Pants on the ground
Lookin’ like a fool with your pants on the ground
With the gold in your mouth, hat turned sideways
Pants hit the ground, call yourself a cool cat
Lookin’ like a fool, walkin’ to the town
With your pants on the ground!

According to the Huffington Post, Conan O’ Brien released an official statement on Tuesday afternoon. He will not be following Jay Leno’s new time slot out of respect for the Tonight Show Brand. .. …I am Team Conan :/
People of Earth:
In the last few days, I’ve been getting a lot of sympathy calls, and I want to start by making it clear that no one should waste a second feeling sorry for me. For 17 years, I’ve been getting paid to do what I love most and, in a world with real problems, I’ve been absurdly lucky. That said, I’ve been suddenly put in a very public predicament and my bosses are demanding an immediate decision.
Six years ago, I signed a contract with NBC to take over The Tonight Show in June of 2009. Like a lot of us, I grew up watching Johnny Carson every night and the chance to one day sit in that chair has meant everything to me. I worked long and hard to get that opportunity, passed up far more lucrative offers, and since 2004 I have spent literally hundreds of hours thinking of ways to extend the franchise long into the future. It was my mistaken belief that, like my predecessor, I would have the benefit of some time and, just as important, some degree of ratings support from the prime-time schedule. Building a lasting audience at 11:30 is impossible without both.
But sadly, we were never given that chance. After only seven months, with my Tonight Show in its infancy, NBC has decided to react to their terrible difficulties in prime-time by making a change in their long-established late night schedule.
Last Thursday, NBC executives told me they intended to move the Tonight Show to 12:05 to accommodate the Jay Leno Show at 11:35. For 60 years the Tonight Show has aired immediately following the late local news. I sincerely believe that delaying the Tonight Show into the next day to accommodate another comedy program will seriously damage what I consider to be the greatest franchise in the history of broadcasting. The Tonight Show at 12:05 simply isn’t the Tonight Show. Also, if I accept this move I will be knocking the Late Night show, which I inherited from David Letterman and passed on to Jimmy Fallon, out of its long-held time slot. That would hurt the other NBC franchise that I love, and it would be unfair to Jimmy.
So it has come to this: I cannot express in words how much I enjoy hosting this program and what an enormous personal disappointment it is for me to consider losing it. My staff and I have worked unbelievably hard and we are very proud of our contribution to the legacy of The Tonight Show. But I cannot participate in what I honestly believe is its destruction. Some people will make the argument that with DVRs and the Internet a time slot doesn’t matter. But with the Tonight Show, I believe nothing could matter more.
There has been speculation about my going to another network but, to set the record straight, I currently have no other offer and honestly have no idea what happens next. My hope is that NBC and I can resolve this quickly so that my staff, crew, and I can do a show we can be proud of, for a company that values our work.
Have a great day and, for the record, I am truly sorry about my hair; it’s always been that way.

The time has come, Simon Cowell has finally decided to leave American Idol. This will be his final season The network made the announcement today at the Television Critics Association tour in Pasadena, Ca. Cowell’s popular UK show, The X Factor will be coming to the US in the Fall of 2011. He will be both executive producer and a judge on The X Factor.
“I want to leave Idol this year bigger and better than it was in the past….I’m thrilled that we have put a date on the launch of the U.S. version of ‘The X Factor,’ and delighted to be continuing to work with Fox,” said Cowell in a statement. “We have a fantastic relationship, a great team and are all very excited about this.”
I’m gonna miss Simon *tear. American Idol just won’t be the same without him. In other TV news, one of my favorite new shows Glee has been renewed for a second season!
According to The Hollywood Reporter:
The show also is launching a nationwide casting search to fill new roles for season two.
The auditions will start in February and will be open to amateurs and professionals between the ages of 16-26.
“Anybody and everybody now has a chance to be on a show about talented underdogs,” co-creator/exec producer Ryan Murphy said. “No matter who you are — a Broadway talent or a struggling singing waiter with a dream in the Midwest — you now have an opportunity to make that dream come true by posting your talent video and showing us what you can do.”
Glee returns with orignal episodes April 13th.

I was so rooting for Mya & Dmitry. …According to eonline, Mya, who has been a frontrunner all season long, was feeling some conflicting emotions. “There’s so much. There’s disappointment, dedication, passion and commitment…I’ve learned multiple amount of things. It’s an experience that you’ll never forget for the rest of your life and that you want to share with others.”
She was definitely the more skilled dancer, but it’s not just about that. America loves Donnie Osmond, clearly he had more fans calling in. I’m not bitter ..lol Anyway check out Mya and Dmitry’s Hairspray freestyle performance from Monday night. It didn’t go over too well with the judges, and I agree it wasn’t the best choice for finals..but I loved the performance. I’m also a huge fan of Hairspray!

I watched the new sci-fi series V last Tuesday on ABC. I really enjoyed it and plan on putting into my regular tv rotation. I was watching Inside Edition tonight and apparently some think that the show has a hidden agenda: It’s a thinly-disguised critique of the Obama administration, according to Miami Herald TV critic Glenn Garvin.
“The leader of the space aliens is very good looking, telegenic, she comes, much as Obama did, out of nowhere. There is instant mania for her among Americans and the press corps. She won’t deal with news media that are critical or tough on her.
The most obvious reference to the Obama administration: the aliens offer universal health care.
When asked if he thought the character might infuriate Obama supporters, Garvin replied:
“I don’t think the show is anti-Obama, I think the show is more properly a critique of what happens when people get carried away with a new leader,” he says. Meanwhile, the internet is buzzing about V. One blogger wrote: “The parallels to Obama are unmistakable.”
There are a lot of parallels. What do you think?
UPDATE: PART 2 BELOW
In a 20/20 interview airing Friday, Rihanna offers a detailed account of what happened the night Chris Brown assaulted her.
She says all she kept thinking was, “When is it going to stop? When is it going to stop? He had no soul in his eyes. Just blank. He was clearly blacked-out. There was no person when I looked at him.”
The fight, she says, started when Brown received a text message from another woman while they were driving away from a Grammy Awards party.
“I caught him in a lie, and he wouldn’t tell the truth. And I wouldn’t drop it,” Rihanna tells Diane Sawyer in the interview, portions of which aired Friday morning on Good Morning America.
“I couldn’t take that he kept lying to me, and he couldn’t take that I wouldn’t drop it … It escalated into him being violent towards me. And it was ugly.”
How ugly? “I was battered, I was bleeding, I was swollen in my face,” she says.
